Thanks Jay 8)

BTW I wonder if some attractive for public players who are signed to Zagreb or Zagreb ALT can come to Wrocław challenger just the next week... Costa's name looks interesting. He didn't sign to a claycourt event in South America. Cause I think Baghdatis will make a big jump over the 50th position...

Why can Agassi never enter a tournament ON TIME and always needs a WC ??? It is an unfair behaviour.

this should be regulated by the ATP: only 3 WC per year for late entry...

I doubt he was ever intending to play it because it's such a small tournament. He probably decided to do it at the last minute, after having to pull out of the AO in the hope of getting some matches.

The current rule is five wild cards/year (if you were ranked high enough for direct entry--unlimited otherwise), but Agassi is one of the few active players exempt from the rule because he's over 35.

http://www.sun-sentinel.com/sports/tenn ... rts-tennis
The wild cards have gone to No. 7 Andre Agassi, No. 225 Mardy Fish and No. 294 Sargis Sargsian, a good friend of Agassi's.

wasnt mazarakis already in because the SE spots where cleared?

When all SE spots are cleared like in Viña del Mar, do both spots go the the first 2 in alt or does the tournament get one more WC?

No, the SE spots have not been cleared yet. When they are cleared they take players in from the entry list - the spots do not become WCs.

Update:

Delray Beach -- Bastl at ALT #4, Gabashvili at ALT #8 OUT
Vina Del Mar -- N.Lapentti, F.Mantilla, Volandri OUT; Mazarakis, Portas, Ramirez-Hidalgo IN
Zagreb -- No withdrawals.

NEXT: Kunitsyn, Greul, Delgado, Enqvist, Navarro-Pastor, Tipsarevic, Luczak

No changes at the other two places. I assume DiMauro and Marach have to decide where they are going -- Del Ray Beach or Vina Del Mar .. Both are at the beach, guys -- so just pick one! :)

ATP rules doesn't let that a player withdraws from a tournament played the next week if he's still playing a tournament .

How come Baghdatis has already officially pulled out ?? :KooKoo:

ATP Official Rulebook:
3) No player may continue playing in an ATP or Challenger Series Tournament in singles or doubles after giving notice of withdrawal from a Tournament scheduled for the next week.

I can get logged blaaah.

He played doubles with his gf Alize Cornet though. Yes I heard he got cold in Australia (rain in Australia, cold in Australia, -30 C in Poland... things happen...) plus he had problems with blood coming from his nose (poor thing).
I would wonder how serious it is if I didn't know he did play with Cornet and even won some matches.
The cold might be back, or I fear it's something more serious.

Postby Nathaliia » Fri Jan 27, 2006 10:05 am

Haha I'm sorry for the mess :D It's me of course and in my previous post I meant I couldn't get logged actually :)
Maybe I really need to go sleep, at least for few hours ;).
Smucav thank you a lot for quoting the rulebook... :HeadBang:

And all the best to Gael, of course.
Now I wonder what if the guys like Marach, Kunitsyn, Navarro Pastor entered ATP events in places different than Europe, I guess they will go there, but they signed in to the challengers in week 6 (needless to wonder which challenger I mean). It would be difficult to come back to Europe and play challenger.

Roddick accepts spot in Delray qualifying tourney
By Harvey Fialkov
sun-sentinel.com
January 27, 2006, 10:40 AM EST

In a stunning development, Andy Roddick, the No. 3-ranked player in the world, has accepted a spot in this weekend's qualifying tournament in an attempt to earn one of four spots available for the Delray Beach International Tennis Championships.

The 32-player draw was out of wild cards, so Roddick, who grew up in nearby Boca Raton, will be forced to earn his way in. Roddick was knocked out of the Australian Open in the fourth round 6-4, 1-6, 6-3, 6-4 by surprising finalist Marcos Baghdatis, the 20-year old from Cyprus.

Roddick has played in the Delray Beach tournament four times with one final appearance in 2002, an upset loss to Italy's Davide Sanguinetti.

Roddick was unable to receive a wild card because Andre Agassi, Mardy Fish and Sargis Sargsian had already been granted direct entry into the draw. Agassi, an eight-time Grand Slam champion, was forced to sit out the Australian Open with an ankle injury.

Roddick Enters Delray Beach Qualifying

Fans can sit in box seats and watch the No. 3-ranked tennis player in the world tomorrow for FREE at the Delray Beach Tennis Center as Andy Roddick has informed the Delray Beach International Tennis Championships that he will play in its qualifying rounds. The top four players who finish in the two-day qualifying tournament advance to the main draw, which starts Monday (Jan. 30).

Roddick is seeking to join a main draw that includes eight*time Grand Slam champion Andre Agassi and ATP stars Robby Ginepri, Tommy Haas, Mardy Fish as well as defending champion Xavier Malisse.

"I spoke to Andy and he requested a wild card and he understands that I didn't have one to give," said tournament director Mark Baron, who gave Roddick a wild card into his first ATP tournament in 2000 and one in 2001 as well. "He is playing the qualies because he wants match play, it's his hometown and it works for him."

Roddick will be the No. 1 seed in the qualifying tournament, and could play as many as two matches tomorrow depending on the number of players who sign up to play in the 32-man draw. If less than 32 players enter, he would receive a bye in the first round, which starts at 10:00 am tomorrow. A final match would come on Sunday at 12:00 noon.

Roddick has played in this tournament four times, with his best result coming in 2002 when he reached the final before losing to Italian Davide Sanguinetti. He is 4-3 in singles play, and teamed with Jan-Michael Gambill in 2001 to win the tournament¹s doubles crown.

The last time a qualifier was seeded in a main draw of an ATP event came in May of 1995 when Frenchman Arnaud Boetsch was the No. 5 seed in Bologna.

Should Roddick qualify into the Delray Beach ITC main draw, he would be the No. 1 seed in the tournament (Agassi would be No. 2), and the highest qualifier ever seeded in an ATP event. Goran Ivanisevic currently holds that distinction‹he was the No. 2 seed in the Manchester ATP event in June, 1991.


Qualifying rounds begin at 10:00 am tomorrow and Sunday¹s final around begins at noon. Admission is free to the public, and stadium seats are available on a first-come, first-served basis.

The sign-in for the qualifying tournament ends tonight at 9:00 pm. The players will then be bracketed and an order of play will be announced. The tournament's main draw, originally scheduled for tomorrow at noon, will now be held Sunday following qualifying rounds.

The Delray Beach ITC is the first of 14 ATP tournaments that will be held in the United States in 2006. Box seats, reserved series seats and individual session tickets are on sale through YellowTennisBall.com, the Delray Beach ITC Ticket Office (561-330-6000) or Ticketmaster in Palm Beach (561) 966-3309, Broward (954) 523-3309 or Dade (305) 358-5885.

Single session grandstand tickets range from $10 to $20 while box seats are $50 to $75. Championship packages that include preferred seating for all 11 sessions are $220 while the Weekender package (quarterfinals through finals) is $150. Box seat packages begin at $930 for two seats and range up to $2,000 for four premium courtside seats. Box seats include premier parking and an array of amenities.

The tournament anticipates that all box seats and reserved seats will be sold in the next few days, leaving only grandstand tickets available.

Please visit YellowTennisBall.com throughout the tournament for news, live scoring, and ticket information.

Rumor has it Blake is out of Delray, can they get a loophole in the rules somehow to get Roddick in directly?

No. Either an alternate or lucky loser will get the next spot (depending on when Blake withdrew). To deny someone on the alternate list his rightful spot for a bigger name who didn't enter on time is exactly why the entry rules are the way they are.

That's what I thought, but I was talking to someone who thought there might be some way to get him in that way. Thanks!
